NEW ROCHELLE, NY – LGS Specialty Sales, Ltd. (LGS), a leading importer and distributor of citrus, avocados and grapes, expands its notable Darling Citrus line with the addition of seasonal Chilean Cara Cara oranges, available August through mid to late September.
“We are so excited to be adding cara caras to our Darling Citrus line,” said Luke Sears, president and founder of LGS Specialty Sales. “Growing our Darling line has been a great accomplishment for LGS and we are excited to continue supplying the U.S. with fresh, flavorful citrus grown in select regions across the world.”
This year, Cara Cara oranges are joining the Darling Citrus line during its summer citrus program. LGS Specialty Sales provides peak of season citrus to the U.S. year-round by sourcing from growers all around the world. For instance, Chile provides clementines, oranges and lemons from early summer to late fall while Argentina produces lemons from early spring through late summer.
“The Darling line is successful because of the select growers we partner with,” added Sears. “Our summer citrus growers have provided us with excellent quality and volume for the summer and we are excited to now offer our customers an even greater variety with the Darling Cara Caras.”
The Darling Clementines brand was established in 1991 and expanded throughout the years to include oranges, lemons, Minneolas and Cara Cara oranges. In addition to the year-round availability of Darling Clementines and Lemons, Darling Oranges are available July through October and Darling Minneolas are currently in season through September.
In an effort to elevate the variety of fruit offered to consumers, Darling Citrus also changed its social media handles from @DarlingClementines to @DarlingCitrus. This not only streamlines messaging across the brand, but offers opportunities to continue expanding the Darling Citrus program.
